ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said, "we're seeing a dead heat, in fact we're seeing that all over the country" during CBS News' Face the Nation program on Sunday (November 6). "Donald Trump is closing and he's got the momentum going into Tuesday," said Priebus. "We've got a candidate that appeals to a lot of voters that haven't engaged in a long time and he actually appeals to a lot of folks in the midwest," the RNC chairman said. Opinion polls show Clinton still holds advantages in states that could be critical in deciding the election. But her lead has narrowed after a revelation a week ago that the Federal Bureau of Investigation was looking into a new trove of emails as part of its probe into her handling of classified information while she was secretary of state. A McClatchy-Marist opinion poll released on Saturday of voters nationwide showed Clinton leading by 1 percentage point compared to 6 percentage points in September. A Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll on Saturday showed Clinton ahead by 4 percentage points nationally compared to 5 points on Friday, while an ABC News-Washington Post tracking poll had Clinton ahead by 48 to 43 percent. Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence on Sunday pledged Donald Trump's campaign would accept a "clear outcome" to the U.S. presidential election but said both campaigns reserved legal options if there was a disputed result.
